Recipe Comments & Reviews

This recipe couldn't miss it had all of our favorite foods all put together and toasted or fried as some in my household like to call it. You see all I have to say is it's fried and they all {mostly} will hurry to the table to eat, but in this case everyone liked it, they asked for more and left nothing on their plate! I served them with a small bowl of cinnamon apple sauce on the side. As my Dad use to say "Don't you just love it when a plan comes together"! And isn't that what we do all the time," plan meals"? Thank you LAND O LAKES, you have taken all the work out of the planning! I just wish Dad was still around, he would have loved this one. I would give it a 10 if possible, but since 5 is the highest you can go we give it a 5.(by the way) if it had just been a plain toasted cheese, I would have served a soup of their choice. And I just have to add that none of your recipes could ever be called plain! As a person that has been inventing my own recipes since I was 16, I like the way your test kitchen puts things together that most of us might never have thought of. So can I at least give them a solid 10?
This is not your comfort food toasted cheese. Yes, we still need the time-honored ones our Mom's made served with tomato soup that just make us feel all warm inside; but this toasted cheese is an all-dressed up in pearls and a little black dress. Yum, if you like bacon, or avocado, or cheese run and try this one. You won't be sorry. And, use a rich hearty whole grain bread and it is just over the top!

What in the World Can You Dip in Chocolate?
January 6, 2016 by Land O'Lakes Test Kitchen

Chocolate’s complex flavor brings out the sweetness and tanginess of fruit, mellows the heat of peppers, and comes alive when introduced to a little bit of salt. The real question should be, “What can’t you dip in chocolate?” More ...
